Play

At Kids 4 Us Nursery we believe in providing well-planned experiences based on children’s spontaneous play, both indoors and outdoors, is an important way in which Kids 4 Us staff support young children to learn with enjoyment and challenge.

Kids 4 Us Nursery ensure that children’s learning and development occur as an outcome to their individual interests and abilities and that planning for learning and development takes account of these.

 

Kids 4 Us Nursery feel that children’s experiences of the outdoors offers children both physical and mental challenges. We are able to offer children opportunities for outside learning and development. The outside area is available throughout the session on a free flow basis. We have a large secure outside play area which consists of a garden where children are able to experience all aspects of growing and maintaining vegetables and flowers, a large multi use area where children are able to access gross motor equipment and an enclosed shaded area where children are able to use equipment such as climbing frames, slides, balancing equipment and role play area.

 

The outdoor play area is made available to all children throughout the year.  This offers children and staff opportunities to talk about seasons, changing weather conditions, people who help us and lots of other exciting experiences.

Please can you provide your child with suitable outdoors clothing i.e. coats, wellies, hat, scarf and gloves in the winter months. Sun hats and sun cream during the summer months.
